Pupils highlight need to honour our war heroes
Prior to the annual Remembrance events taking place across Monklands this weekend, the Advertiser popped into Plains Primary School and asked the pupils for their views on the importance of paying tribute to the fallen at this time of year.
Scott McDowall, 10, said: “It’s important to pay respects to everyone who died in war.”
Chloe Gaynor, 11: “They risked their lives so that one day the world could live in peace.”
David Peacock, 11, agreed: “We don’t forget about the people who fought for our country.”
Liana Holland, 10, said: “We must be thankful to everyone who fought and died.”
